Default Acrobatics - normal?

Hope I've posted this in the right place. I've seen under budgie behaviour that it's OK for budgies to hang upside down. Simmi does this, and similar acrobatics, and I just wanted to know why he does this.

Also, the upside down hanging he will do at night, after lights out. He doesn't do it all the time, but I just want to check that it's not because he's frightened because it's gone dark, or anything like that.

Thank you

That's perfectly normal odd budgie behavior, I know of budgies that sleep hanging on the side cage bars, these little beings are just odd, better get used to their antics, part of their charm in my opinion

Hi, Susan --

René is absolutely correct.

Simmi's behavior is normal for a budgie.
Budgies "do what they do" (e.g. sleeping in what we consider to be "strange" positions) simply because they are budgies.
It is part of their charm and nothing to be concerned about.

When he does it in daylight it seems he's having fun, but when the lights were out I was worried it was because he was worried and couldn't settle. He'll sometimes climb about upside down before then settling 'upright' on his perch.
As long as that's ok I feel ok.
Thanks.

It is 100% "OK".

My Rocket would also do that We have so many pictures and videos of her upside down. Just take it as an opportunity to teach them a trick!

We taught her the "flip" after seeing her go upside-down so much
